I recently purchased the NHD-0216SZW-BG5 OLED display. I tested it with this universal frequency counter and it works fine: http://www.pongrance.com/ddfc-cc.html
My plan is to use the OLED display to replace a smaller YJD1602A-1 LCD display in a radio project.
I have used a NewHaven NHD-0216SZ-FSW-FBW LCD display and that works perfect as a replacement.
The problem is that the NHD-0216SZW-BG5 OLED display is not working properly with the radio. When power is applied, sometimes the display turns on, sometimes not. When it does turn on it only displays gibberish. I have checked the pinouts on the data sheet and they are the same as the LCD's I have used.
The radio uses pins 1-6 & 11-16. The micro-controller on the radio I identified as a PIC16F884-I/PT
Is the OLED not even compatible with this? Do I need to wire it differently or change some jumpers?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
